Week 1, Project 2.

I'm in slight disbelief! I found a tutorial for pajama pants yesterday. It wasn't very self-explanatory, which is not good for me. I have discovered that I'm a visual learner - I need to SEE how things go together and what they are going to look like....... to just read instructions? It does me no good. But, today is Andrew's 6th birthday and I've been holding on to this thermal Pirates material for awhile now. So I thought, why not? I'll give it a shot. I modeled these pajama pants after a pair of jeans we bought during back to school shopping. Remind me to never use thermal again, or anything with ANY stretch for that matter. Regardless, I'm just happy they LOOK like pants, let alone are actually something he will like and wear. The fabric was purchased at Joann's in the remnant bin. Total cost, not including thread and elastic??
57 cents!

Does anyone have an idea of some kind of coordinating accessory I can make out of the scraps I have left??
